the T2 has a 38mm/2.8 lens.  it's older technology, being over 10 years old 
now, a little on the big side and has a bit of shutter lag, but the lens is 
sharp, and it is tough.  i ran my car over it once by accident.  the T3 
compressed the T2 prices to about $400.  whenever i go to bergen county 
camera, there's a case of used T2's.
